    "Entry Position Only - Walnut Creek Office"

    I worked at Applied Behavior Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide free training and RBT certification (to some employees) and supervisors are generally nice, though in a disingenuous manner, if you do as they say. It's a solid entry level position to get your foot in the door since they only really require some form of psychology coursework and experience with kids. I've definitely seen some BTs come through that were just not the right fit for the job, however.

    Cons

    Supervisors are catty and moody - the Walnut Creek location isn't very organized and they lost a lot of consultants/BTs and was running with only two people as case managers/consultants and no director for at least a year. Majority of consultants are not BCBA certified, which is a bit of a downgrade from other companies. The center based location that was set up in the last year started offering services without having rules/regulations/structure and it was glaringly clear to both employees and families. Rules were constantly bent and rewritten to benefit supervisors. There's a weird "company vs families" culture and parent concerns are typically belittled because they only have "interfering thoughts." Not the best clinical work - supervisors will pack schedules with 5-7 hour long sessions with only 5 lessons to work on - BTs and the kids get drained, it's just not clinically effective and a waste of time - pretty much squeezing family's insurance for every bit of money they can get out of them. Favorites are definitely played.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind and work with the families as a team - it's not just the kids that are working hard to improve their quality of life.

    Pros

    Pros working here are getting hired very quickly and jumping into the hiring process
    Also very nice people and opportunity for switching from part time to full time

    Cons

    Cons would be starting pay lower than its competitor, and not many hours. Had to get full-time because of most hours after school 3-8 pm

    Pros

    Amazing! The kids are amazing you spend so much time with them that you feel you're apart of the family! Everyone at the office are so friendly and willing to help you in any way they can! Even the BCBA's are willing to help you if you are trying to pursue your masters.

    Cons

    None really. Other than sessions can be cancelled occasionally but children get sick its understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Applied Behavior Consultants part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training was very educational, lead tutors are welcoming and the school site is fun for the children

    Cons

    A little unorganized and the upper staff is a bit snooty... no room for pay negotiations, as they have already decided on pay when they offer u the job. Did not take experience into account and the pay is low for the amount of data requested alo g with teaching lessons.

    Advice to Management

    Pay fair and understand that the tutors are the heart of the company and should be paid fairly.
